Calling all geeks: SolarWinds challenges you to turn hungry holidays into happy holidays.
December 1, 2010 § Leave a comment
SolarWinds has teamed up with the Food Bank to help feed families in need this holiday season. In addition to underwriting the fundraising campaign, “Turning Hungry Holidays into Happy Holidays,” SolarWinds employees donated more than $13,000 in cash and food during a two-week period in late October and early November. But then we decided to take it a step further and issue a challenge to local tech companies and the greater community to make this our most successful food drive to date.
So far, Microsoft has stepped up and committed to taking the SolarWinds challenge.
Companies interested in joining the challenge can call Molly Robbins, Community Events Manager, at (512-684-2531) or email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit the SolarWinds campaign webpage at http://www.solarwinds.com/donate/
“This year, the need in our community far exceeds what one company can tackle – and so we thought what better way to put Austin’s love of a little friendly competition to really good use. Regardless of who wins or loses, we want to ensure the Capital Area Food Bank of Texas, and our neighbors in need, benefits in a big way,” said Kevin Thompson, SolarWinds CEO. “The SolarWinds family exceeded its goal, but we’re anxious to see what Austin as a collective can do when put to the test.”
